3 Bonus Ways To Find A Rescue Golden Retriever
If none of the Golden Retriever rescues in or near Oklahoma have the Golden you’re looking for, don’t worry — there are a few more options.
The first option is to scope out your local animal shelters.
New dogs arrive every day and you might get lucky and find a Golden.
It might be a long shot of finding a Golden here, but there’s also the chance that you’ll fall in love with another dog!
The second option is to get active in your local Golden Retriever Facebook groups.
I’ve seen several people try to find a new home for their Golden through these groups and that could be your shot at getting a new pup.
Just be sure to watch out for scammers!

The final option is to get active in your local Golden Retriever clubs.
It’s another long shot here, but someone might have some insider knowledge of a Golden who needs a new home, and I’ve found that the more Golden Retriever lovers you know, the more likely you are to stumble upon one who needs you and your home.
And speaking of Golden Retriever Clubs…
